Ballett Barre – Open Level

Open Level

Robert’s fun, joyful and dynamic ballet class combines the structure and vocabulary of a classical ballet class with the requirements and demands of a contemporary dancer.

The class starts at the Barre – a gentle and thorough warm up that follows a clear and logical progression, with an emphasis on functionality, healthy alignment, and clear placement. Listening to and respecting the needs of the dancer without losing the focus on pure ballet technique.
